The Super Eagles of Nigeria are gearing up to face Sierra Leone on June 18th, with the aim of securing their spot in the 2023 AFCON tournament. The Nigerian football community has been divided over the inclusion of Sivasspor forward Ahmed Musa in the Super Eagles roster, despite his inconsistent performances at the club level. However, head coach Jose Peseiro has defended his decision, citing Musa’s valuable experience and leadership as essential to the overall team spirit.
Musa’s impact was evident in the previous match against Djurtus of Guinea-Bissau in March, where he came on as a substitute and put pressure on the opponents’ defence with his crosses and control. Peseiro believes that Musa’s presence in the squad will create team spirit, organization, and a sense of unity.
The Super Eagles will travel to Liberia to face Sierra Leone, knowing that a win or draw would secure their place in the 2023 AFCON tournament in Côte d’Ivoire. Fans are eagerly anticipating the match, and all eyes will be on Musa to see if he can step up and lead the team to victory.
